In a rebuild/fresh start approach you have to be able to draw a line under mistakes made in the past and start making good decisions from day one, so you have a platform to build on while you reshape the squad.

If you come in and start making your own mistakes that you then have to go in to rectify, you simultaneously make your own rebuild much harder and also destroy your credibility with the people who you need to buy in to your approach.

On the unbalanced squad thing, I'm wondering if we hadn't anticipated being able to successfully sign all of our potential prop targets, and because we were short, we signed every 'possible' option just in case. Specifically, I'm wondering if we had doubts as to whether we'd be able to sign top targets Vaughan and Mguire and coincidently they were the last prop signings we made; therefore, we played it safe with other signings before these. Out of all the positions we needed to recruit, we were most desperate in the props department so we over compensated.

Won't be long before he replaces his ridiculous Cas full time pizzas with artisan toasted foccacias to console the boys after another heavy loss.


I've said this for a few years, as our recruitment has become increasingly erratic. It's a blessing and a curse, and all prudence, due diligence and caution goes out of the window in the haste to bankroll a solution.

It’s correct - Holmes and Bullock being offered to other clubs to free up cap space for half back.


Bullock going nowhere according to this.
